Interior decoration is a difficult job unless you know how to choose the best paintings. One of the major dilemmas that people face while decorating their living rooms is ‘what to buy and what not to buy’. Paintings and posters are always on the top of the list. After all your living space is one of the most prominent parts of your house that needs to be just perfect in order to make you feel good. Here are some tips that will lead you to buy a better painting and will also help you in clearing off the dilemma.
Identify which places in the room you would want to fill and which will remain empty. Make sure you have correct measurements of the walls in your mind on which you want to put your art. This will help you decipher the correct size of the paintings or posters that you want to buy.
Deciding a definite color theme for the room is the next important step. The piece of art that you buy should go in hand with the rest of the room. It should not stand out weirdly or even if it does, you need to make sure that it is not looking ugly. If you want to make the place lively, you can incorporate a few colors that contrast with each other to make it colorful and bright. If you wish to make it peaceful and soothing, bland colors like cream and white which are simple and soothing shall go with it. You can add some chocolate brown or slightly darker shades when it comes to frames and furniture.
Now is the time for you to select the correct piece of art for your living room. Well, because it is the living room, you should stay away from experimenting too much with sexy erotica or dead people and animals. Go with the traditional black and white designs or if not that try soothing and abstract art forms in painting. They would emphasize you to relax and you will also have some peaceful time.
It is obviously necessary to give your paintings the right stature. Hanging them correctly and in symmetrical manner is very important. You must leave ample white space behind the poster so it may have an identity for itself. Providing them with the correct amount of light too is an equally important factor in making you paintings look expressive.
